Zoli and Barba are inseparable friends and outcasts. Both physically disabled, they live in a rehabilitation facility where life seems rather aimless. Zoli needs life-saving surgery but doesn’t want his absent father to pay out of guilt and pity. Enter Rupasov, a mysterious wheelchair-bound man newly released from prison. He quickly adopts the two friends and offers them a chance to make some extra money by helping him in his work. That work, however, is murder. Rupasov is a hitman. His ruthless boss doesn’t like the new assistants and orders him to get rid of both of them. When Rupasov refuses, all three of them become candidates for elimination. KILLS ON WHEELS is a very, very dark and very, very twisted story of friendship, loyalty, and revenge. As the corpses pile up and the boys become more enamored of their new career, a wild and bloody showdown approaches. Unafraid to offend and with a surprise ending that is genuinely touching, KILLS ON WHEELS is a demented Festival bonbon. (In Hungarian with subtitles) —C.R.
KILLS ON WHEELS was selected as Hungary's entry for Best Foreign Language Film for this year's Academy Awards®.
